THE BOOK OF PSALMS: AN OVERVIEW
The name of the Book of Psalms comes from the Anglicized “Psalmoi” in the Septuagint (LXX, Greek Old Testament dated ca. 250 BCE). The ancient Hebrews called it Book of Praises. To them, it was both a book of prayers and a book of hymns. Early Christians called it The Psalter, meaning, poems set to music. It is generally agreed that Ezra the scribe collected and arranged the psalms in their present order, by the progression of ...<< MORE >>
IS YOUR MUSIC
Music has spiritual effects as well as mental, emotional and physical effects upon people. Indeed, music has the power to move the passions to evil, and it has the power to lift the spirit of man to praise and worship the Lord God. Thus, because music serves as an emotional trigger that can be used for good or evil purposes, we assert that music has moral values. Therefore the type of music listened to or performed, should be regulated by ...
The New Evangelical Theology
Sound Theology Kicked Out of the Church
Capitulation to heresy is one of the noted hallmarks of the New Evangelicalism, today's mainstream Evangelicalism. However, a careful look at the Example of the Lord Jesus in Scripture demonstrates that He never acted in love at the expense of ...<< MORE >>
The New Evangelical Methodology
<< MORE >>
The growing intensity and wider dissemination of the unbiblical mood of the New Evangelicals have led them to their unbiblical methodology. The New Evangelicalism adopted a new procedure for evangelizing the world, which procedure is now dangerously carried into other areas of ministry as well. The New Evangelical mood is the pregnant woman which gave birth to the New Evangelical method.
Consequently, the obvious rottenness of their apple of methodology spread throughout their large theological basket; and ...
The New Evangelical Mood
In 1969, the late Dr. Charles Woodbridge, the fourteenth generation of Woodbridge preachers, a Th.B. from Princeton Seminary and a Ph.D. from Duke University, wrote an insightful book warning of the deadly New Evangelicalism and calling upon the Church at large to adhere to Scriptural obedience. His brief introduction read as follows:
The New Evangelicalism is a theological and moral compromise of the deadliest sort. It is an insidious attack upon the Word of God. No more subtle menace has confronted ...<< MORE >>

The Bible on
“You shall not commit adultery” (Exodus 20:14) is one of the ten great commandments the Lord God gave to mankind via His Prophet Moses. God's commandments are given for the protection, for the welfare and for the happiness of mankind.

KEPT BY THE POWER OF GOD (3):
UNDERSTANDING THE SANCTIFICATION
OF THE BELIEVER IN CHRIST
In reading the books of the Old Testament, the reader is frequently faced with the assertions of the holiness of the Lord God of the Bible. God’s holiness is the sum total of the positive and the negative aspects of His moral purity. Indeed, holiness is uniquely the substance of God (Exod. 15:11; 1 Sam. 2:2; Isa. 57:15), ...<< MORE >>
THE NATURE OF SIN IN GOD’S SIGHT
The judicial act of God in regard to sin is judgment (Matt. 11:22, 24; 2 Pet. 2:4, 9), accusation (Jude 9), damnation (Matt. 23:33; Mark 3:29), and condemnation (John 3:19; 5:24). God’s verdict of the sinfulness of every human being is based on the following:
1. Inherited Sin, the sin nature transmitted mediately by natural generation from parent to child (Psa. 51:5; John 3:6); this sin automatically generates the spiritual death of the person, at the moment of conception in the ...<< MORE >>

We believe that in addition to a steadfast belief in the unification of the Biblical materials, the formulation of Bible Doctrine requires all of the following: 1. the collection of the Biblical materials (the scattered facts and teachings in Scripture); 2. the identification of the essence of the particular doctrine; 3. the illumination from sources extra Biblical; 4. the development of the central interpretive motif; 5. the comprehensive ...
WHY WE MUST ATTACK ISLAM – 4th Edition
I attack Islam openly and without apology. I do it for the following good
1. The character of the Muslim Allah displayed in the Qur'an is very similar to the character of
Satan in the Bible. This has led some Christian theologians to conclude that they are one and the same. I agree! Islam is at once pantheistic & deistic.

THE POSSIBILITY OF THE FORMULATION
OF BIBLE DOCTRINES
We believe that the Christian Holy Scriptures are the accurately recorded Voice of God, and are not the voice of men. Therefore, it is incumbent upon us to systematize the major teachings of the Bible and to formulate them into Bible Doctrines accessible to the public. Built exclusively on the major teachings of the Holy Scriptures, we declare that Bible Doctrine is the sure basis for our unity and our partnership in The Truth. Indeed, Bible Doctrine is the consistent
norm and the decisive test for our cooperation in the Christian Ministry.

THE BLESSED TRINITY: THE
Everything about the Lord God is beyond our human capabilities to grasp fully or exhaustively, because the Lord God majestically is outside the boundaries of human limitations. For example, we do not understand how God is without beginning and without end. We are incapable of understanding how is it that the Lord God is present everywhere. Yet these are truths that the Lord God has revealed to us about Himself, and we accept them by faith in His truthfulness and His inerrancy. Likewise, the revealed Trinitarian Existence of God is the most ...<< MORE >>
DOES GOD HATE THE SINNER?
There is a video by Mr. Bill Cribbs (Diasozo Ministries) circulating around Face Book, and claiming that God hates the sinner. I have watched this video, and I find some of Mr. Cribbs’ statements self-contradictory and in violation of God’s Word; therefore, I disagree with his interpretation and his conclusions. It is clear to me that Mr. Cribbs makes several Biblically and theologically unsound assertions and here is why I strongly disagree with his position:
